After taking an exam, start thinking about it, then realize that you forgot to write something, or you wrote something wrong.

UHHH!!!!  I hate that.

What about when you change an answer and you had the right answer originally?

I changed no answers on my crim law multiple-choice questions...for that reason.

I'm trying not to think about the essay questions.

I think you should take the multiple choice and be done with it. There is no going back. People start to over thinkt them. Often, your first thought is the best thought.

When I change answers the second answer is right more often than not.  That's why I do it.

Really? I have experienced the exact opposite. Usually my gut decision is better than thinking it over for too long.

The ones I correct incorrectly are the ones I try to read too much into.

The ones I correct correctly are the ones I was just sloppy on.

I tend to rush through multiple choice so that I can get them all done.

I am speaking of any multiple choice exam. And of course this is just MHO.

That isn't a multiple choice exam.
